The Scarlet Paws Animal Welfare Network is a non-profit organization dedicated to the promotion of the humane treatment of both domestic animals and wildlife found living on the New Brunswick campuses of Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey as a result of abandonment, having become lost, or by birth to the aforementioned, and—in the case of wildlife—having become sick, injured, or displaced from their natural habitat.
We are a collaboration of Rutgers staff, faculty, students, and community volunteers. Scarlet Paws has made a long-term commitment to the welfare and well-being of these animals. Following the example of animal welfare groups organized at other colleges and universities (such as Stanford, Texas A&M, Towson, and Utah State University), we endeavor to promote community awareness of their condition, and to promote, educate, and encourage responsible and timely action by the Rutgers Community and appropriate personnel, toward their care, rescue, and placement into safe and appropriate environments.
Scarlet Paws Animal Welfare Network, Inc is a public charity exempt from Federal Income tax under section 501(c)3 of the Internal Revenue Code, and contributions to Scarlet Paws Animal Welfare Network, Inc are tax deductible.
Starry and Strata (now "Wolverine and Major Tom") have been adopted!
(06/09/2013) Starry (Black & White long hair, at right) and Strata (Black long hair, above) have found their forever homes! These adorable and sweet 2-month-old brothers were rescued from one of our colonies at Rutgers University. Their adoptive parents are Rutgers alumni who have renamed them "Wolverine" and "Major Tom." Their family reports that "they're really fun, loving cats and are so glad they're now part of our home permanently."
Congratulations to Wolverine, Major Tom, and their new family!
Scarlet Paws volunteers participate in 2nd Annual North Brunswick Humane Society Super Cat Adoption Day
(06/08/2013) Volunteers from Scarlet Paws Animal Welfare Network participated in the North Brunswick Humane Society's Super Cat Adoption Day on Saturday, June 8. Scarlet Paws volunteers met the public and discussed our mission to care for animals found living on Rutgers' New Brunswick Campuses. Visitors to our table received Scarlet Paws literature, joined our mailing list, and donated money to help our rescue efforts (and received free toys for their dogs or cats). Our volunteers also networked with many other local animal rescue groups and shelters. It was a very productive day and we are thankful to the organizers for inviting us!
